Condolences for the family of “Dr. Basil W. Pshyk”

Condolence from Julie Ketner Rigby on April 26th, 2007 12:00 am

Lali, I was so sorry to read about your dad’s passing. You may remember me from working at Kenan-Flagler. Your dad was my vet for Wink, Sunny and Walter, and was just wonderful! He helped us through a dog attack on Sunny and I particularly remember his kindness and proficiency in stitching up Walter’s paw one time. My condolences to you and your family.

Dr. Pshyk was my vet for many years. He never failed to inquire about my daughter in addition to taking care of my animals. One Saturday night I called him at home, very late, when my cat, Misha, had a stroke & was critically ill, long before there was an all night emergency vet practice in the area. He was probably asleep but he got up and told me to meet him at Vine’s and together we ended up putting the cat down. I’ll never forget that – it was so characteristic of his incredible dedication to his work. He will be missed.

Lali, I’m so sorry to hear about your dad. I have such wonderful memories of my teenage years with you and your parents. Let’s try to get in touch with one another.

Condolence from Susan Calleson on April 26th, 2007 12:00 am

Dr. Pshyk was a dear, kind man with a nice sparkle in his eyes. I will miss him. He took care of my cat when I was a little girl in the 1960’s. Whenever I had opportunity to see him it always put a smile on my face.
Please accept my condolences.

Condolence from Kathy Schinhan Underhill on April 27th, 2007 12:00 am

Dear Lali and family, Our families became linked many years ago when my parents began taking their pets to your father – my dad and he also went to UNC basketball games and shared a love of German. Your father was such a dear and special man and took such care of my mother’s cats in her later years – she looked forward to going in just to see him. What a wonderful man who will be missed by dogs, cats and people all over the area. All our best to you from Kathy and from Lara who used to babysit Sammy all those years ago.

Condolence from Martha Wilson on April 27th, 2007 12:00 am

Papa Pshyk was certainly the most stoic, tough and determined man I’ve ever known.

He just kept going and going, even when I knew he was tired, he was in pain, he kept pushing forward. He refused to give up.

Working with him for all these years I saw many of his ups and downs during that time.

His saddest time I remember was losing his beloved Maria. I remember how he’d plant flowers at her grave, I remember wondering if he’d get through losing her. He loved her so very much.

Some of his happiest times that I remember were seeing his Tarheels win. Whenever they won, we all knew at work that Dr. Pshyk would be in a VERY good mood the next day and be grinning from ear to ear, just aching to talk about the game and revel once again in a Tarheel Victory to anyone who was another Tarheel fan.

His clients loved him, loved how he’d remember to ask about their other family..the two legged ones:

He will be missed and lovingly remembered forever by many folks.

My deepest condolences to all of Papa Pshyk’s family.

I think he is happy again, he’s with Maria, his other family that has gone before him and his Lord.

Lali,
I was a friend of your Mother’s and had visited in their home. Maria brought me by your bakery shop years ago and introduced us. I’m sorry to hear about your Dad.
Our NCECA, where Maria served so long as state treasurer, will all be sad to hear this news. Our state past presidents meet May 15 & 16 in New Bern and I am sure they all will want to be remembered to you as some of them remember your parents so lovingly.
